Sermon for Sunday, 19th September 2010 (16th Sunday after Trinity/Proper 20) — 4 Comments

  1. Hello Ian!
    Sorry, this comment has nothing to do with your sermon. Just stopped by to let you know that I was thinking of you over the weekend. Garrison Keillor had his annual meatloaf dinner and street dance after his broadcast and it’s always a fun event to attend with my granddaughter. Two years ago, she took second place in his loon calling contest and got a $50 prize. She said once was enough, so didn’t enter this year. Anyway . . . . I’m not trying to steal your thread. Just wanted to let you know that you came to mind as we attended. I should have asked you if you wanted a PHC shirt or something, but I didn’t plan ahead. The event is usually in October and was earlier this year. Hope all is well and that you’ve found a comfortable routine with your new assignment.

  2. Hi Gram,

    Keillor still cheers me up on a regular basis. Wobegon is not so different from where I now work.

    Good to read you and Goodnight are doing well. Hope the fall is mild; the weather in France has been beautiful in the 70s and sunshine. We go back to Irish rain on Friday.

  3. Ian,

    I wondered if your new assignment wasn’t a bit like Wobegone. Glad to hear all is well. So far, our fall is mild and beautiful. I’m putting off turning on the furnace as long as possible.
    I’m heading to the hospital at the end of the month. Don’t shoot me, but when they ask me my religion upon admission, I always tell them I am a ‘none.’ Worrying about some old catholic cleric coming in when I’m doped up on morphine would make me sicker than what I’m going in for. I am generally sanguine, but the abuse scandal has left it’s impact. I’m not convinced it really matters whether someone comes in and throws holy water on me before I go to surgery anyway. What say you?

  4. I have developed a philosophy of trying to cause least harm. I have no belief in holy water or prayers to saints or the like, but they are not actually harmful, so if someone near me was into such stuff and would be hurt if it were rejected, I would probably let them go ahead.
